Minnewaska Lodge was a decent place to stay. It was average hotel-like accomodations - no restaurant. The room was average and left some to be desired - the window screen was lying on the roof below and the room was infested with ladybugs! The breakfast was below average and consisted of juice, cereals and bread - not what you would expect for the price paid.
The thing that stood out was the fact the we could not get the AAA discount because we asked for it "too late". Well, we asked for it BEFORE checking in. This is kind of ridiculous and means one of 2 things. The hotel does not give the discount despit the fact that they say they do, OR they are too lazy to reverse the charge they made for the initial reservation. Either way there is no excuse and they really make the guest feel slighted - not the way you want to feel when on a trip. Mohonk Mountain House is a far better choice if you can afford it.
